Product Information


The Home of the Banjo, Mandolin, Guitar and Kindred Instruments



A beautiful mahogany banjo at an affordable price. We do not make banjo hoops with plywood (these days called advanced multiply rims, but it remains plywood), our hoops are block built by our craftsmen from solid well seasoned wood. We do not favour the brash, metalic tone produced by brass tone rings, instead we integrate a wooden tone ring, in this case American iron wood which produces a wonderful big woody banjo tone. Mahogany neck, geared tuners, ebony fingerboard and Remo head. This instrument is ideally suited for most styles, including clawhammer and we can adapt it for the classical style. For a description of how our banjo hoops are made click here.

If you are buying a banjo with a view to playing classical style be sure to tell us. The classical banjo is strung with nylon or gut strings, most banjo tailpieces will cut through the strings. So we would need to fit the correct strings and a suitable tailpiece. We set this banjo up with steel strings for the other styles unless we are told otherwise.

We have kept this instrument of simple appearance with plain mother of pearl position dots. Adding a lot of ornate mother of pearl shapes only pushes prices up and does nothing to enhance the instrument's tone.
